What can Mono-a-Mono do?

At its core, Mono-a-Mono decomposes a two-channel stereo input into three separate signals: one made up of the components common to both left and right channels (the centre channel), another containing those present only on the left, and the third, those only on the right.

Using this approach, Mono-a-Mono can act as a "de-mixer" or a "vocal remover", as well as its original function, a "mono enhancer" for rejuvenating vintage audio recordings (33 or 45 rpm records, 78s, cylinder recordings, etc.).

To de-mix a recording, Mono-a-Mono separates out all three channels (left, right and centre), producing a 3-channel audio file which can be remixed using standard mixing software.

When acting as a vocal remover, Mono-a-Mono outputs only the left and right channels, assuming that any vocals were originally placed in the centre.

To enhance noisy or distorted recordings of mono signals, Mono-a-Mono just calculates the centre channel, since any signals only on the left or only on the right will not have been part of the original recording.

Whichever of these functions is being performed, Mono-a-Mono can also be used to suppress noise, distortion and unwanted clicks and pops, as well as compensating for any tonal imbalance with a configurable equalisation filter.
